… where in I run for the hills, metaphorically speaking.
There are times when I wonder if certain US citizens think that it’s okay for them to lie, and cheat, and steal, because they think that they are God’s chosen people and that this absolves them from telling the truth and behaving like decent human beings.
The US healthcare debate is one of those times.
The levels of dishonesty regarding the delivery of healthcare in the rest of the world and what is going on in their own country (to their families, friends and neighbours) has reach epic levels of fail. I find myself incapable of stomaching the media coverage because there are so few people who seem capable of saying, “That’s not true,” or “Where did you get that mis-information from?” or even a simple, “Huh?”
When the sanest commentator and interviewer on the issue is Jon Stewart of the Daily Show on the Comedy Channel you know that we’re living in an alternate universe where lies are the truth, propaganda is reason and Big Media is laughing all the way to the bank, counting the millions of dollars that it’s being paid by the healthcare industry and its co-conspirators.
